What lies within you

“Get up and activate the greatness within you.”

Get up and activate the greatness within you.

Written By Benjamin Dankaka

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “What lies behind us, and what lies before us are but tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” To put it another way, our circumstances are not as big as the greatness that is hidden within us. When Emerson made that remark he was possibly talking about our ability to triumph in the midst of challenges. Though we are often surrounded by challenges, within us, lays the power to prevail over every negative situation.  Throughout history, we’ve continually seen individuals who did remarkable things in the midst of challenges. But because they are few, we often think they were specially created by God.

You see, the ability to be a great leader is not the exclusive right of a few people. You were created by God and equipped with the ability to do great things. I don’t know what you think of yourself. But I know you have the spirit of greatness within you. I am certain of this because you were created in God’s image. God is great, and since He put His Spirit inside of you, then you are automatically fortified for greatness. Get up and activate the greatness within you.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for equipping me with greatness. Amen.
